You have a little over a week left to go and check out Henry James and American Painting at the Morgan Library. A series of paintings of and by the people that James was influenced by and those he influenced with his work. Co-curated by Colm Tóibín, and filled with works by John Singer Sargent and James McNeill Whistler, the exhibition won’t take up your entire day, and the Henry David Thoreau exhibition is right across the hall – so it’s well worth whatever the cost of admission is if you’re willing to take a train ride up to Midtown.
Henry James and American Painting runs until September 10th, 2017, and ends just in time for you to pick The Turn of the Screw off your shelf if you want to start getting your spooky autumnal reading started a little early.
